MONARCHISTS SCARED. PORTUGAL MAKING HASTE TO FORM A NEW CABINET. The Royalist Sympathizers Fenr the Effect of Senor Gomes' Surrender to the En- glish Patriotic Feel- Ing Leading to Riotous Demonstrations. Strikers Celebrating a Victory. LOITDON, Jan. Pirmental is making all possible haste to form a Portu- guese ministry to succeed Sonor Gomes and his conferees and his efforts are accelerated by the monarchist fear of the worst of the political consequences likely to arise from the surrender of the Gomes ministry to the de- mands of the English government. The reck- less temper of the people as evinced by their resentment of the government's action, in fatuous warfare upon the British consulate at Oporto, is also an element of alarm to the monarchical organization, in that it exposes the state to reprisals for the acts of irrespon- eible rioters and renews the tension between Lisbon and London. There is a striking unanimity of agreement on the part of the representatives of the Monarchist and Repub- lican parties and factions in Lisbon that nothing should stand in the way of the imme- diate formation of a ministry to deal with the not yet satisfactorily settled questions in Southeast Africa, pending the consideration of -which internal matters are forgotten, or held in abeyance. For the moment, at least, Monarchists, Re- publicans, Socialists and Anarchists alike have sunk political, social and economic questions beep beneath the waves of patriot- ism that now surge over the country and all are simply Portuguese. Nevertheless the Monarchists realise the value of expeditious action and for this reason if for no other the statesmen invited to associate themselves Senor Pimental will display little hesi- tation to accept the responsibility confront- ing them. The continental press without ex- ception condemn the course of England in the matter and openly accuse the British gov- ernment of having, after the manner of a freebooter, wrested from a helples power ter- ritory, her right to which she dared not sub- mit to arbitration. CELEBRATING THEIR VICTORY. The victory of the Charleroi strikers was celebrated at that place yesterday by men, who paraded the streets with bands of music, red flags, banners, etc., singing, cheer- ing and shouting. The police were out in full force, but there was no attempt at vio- lence, the only duty devolving upon the guardians of the peace being that of confin- ing the joyf vl ebullitions of stragglers within the limits of the thoroughfares. A TrBTTMnvTAT. OF GRATITUDE. The dock laborers of London are raising a fond to provide a magnificent testimonial to Cardinal Manning on the occasion of the ecclesiastical jubilee of that prelate, in ap- preciation of his labors in their behalf during the great strike. REFUSES TO BATTLE FOR THE TIMES. Sir Edward Clarke, Q. general, has refused a brief on behalf of The Times, in the suit for libel of Mr. Parnell against that paper. The empress of Germany has assumed the management and furtherance of all of the charities inaugurated by the late ex-Empress Augusta. A vast vein of coal has been found in West Prussia, extending from Losimik to Mogilno. A company has been formed to mine the pro- duct and the government has been appealed to for a concession, with favorable prospects. Queen Victoria received daily bulletins of the condition of the infant king of Spain during the tune he was seriously ilL SENHOR GOMES EXPLAINS. He England and Portugal Will Tot Become Kecouclled. LISBON, Jan. Gomes, at the session of the chamber of peers Monday, made a full statement of the recent negotia- tions with England. He expressed regret that he had been unable to consult the cortes in consequence of the rapid and hidden de- velopment of events. He declared he had always sought to maintain an agreeable understanding with England, and hoped the divergent views of the two countries might yet be reconciled. He had done all that lay in his power to maintain the dignity of Por- tugal without compromising its interests. Senhor Gomes has personally expressed to the British minister his regret at the insults offered to him. The government officially assured the minister that tlie escutcheon would be replaced, all damage repaired and all persons concerned in the outrage punished. The Dia says Senhor Plemental belongs to a party whose tradition is that he always agrees with England in all colonial enter- prises. He may succeed for tuis reason in a case where Gomes failed because he was re- garded as a systematic enemy of Great Britain and auxiliary of Germany. Many shops were closed in consequence of the agitation in the streets. The patriotic demonstrations were in favor of Pietnental. Tne rioting students endeavored to force an entrance into the chamber of deputies. But only a deputation was admitted for the purpose of presenting to the president a pa- triotic resolution. When this was presented the students were excluded and the gates bar- ricaded. A STARTLING DISCLOSURE. A PASSAGE-AT-WORPS.

Mr. Call called up his resolutions in rela- tion to the claims of Florida under the swamp lands grant and the alleged unlawful selec- tions of lauds in Florida, on which he spoke at some length. Mr. Plumb, replying to Mr. Call, said that the United Slates had granted to the state of Florida more than half the land -within its limits. Sixteen or eighteen million acres had been granted as swamp land, yet the senator from Florida said that now most of it was arable land. So much greater was the derel- iction of the senator's if it had beteyed its trust.

It was necessary in the prosecution of the have a poorer opinion of me tha work to look over the books in the city treas- urer's office, and the disclosures made were startling. These were hinted at in the report of the experts of the board of revision. When the latter made their report to the board of councilmen, however, slight, if any, reference was made to them. The experts signed the report to tbe board of councilmen under pro- U-st and only after it had represented to them that thusc irregularities had been investigated betore. The most startling feature of the re- port is a table showing that or were paid out without an, entry in any book to show to wham the money was paid, or for what purpose. A public meeting will probably be called to tako action if the council ignores the disclosures. AN OLD TIMER. Conrt Case of Decision In the Against Ira ALBANY, Jan. the interesting decisions of the court of appeals handed down yesterday was the following: In the case of ttie people ex rel Cornell uni- versity against Ira Davenport, as comptrol- ler, the order of the general term is modified and the comptroller is directed to issue his warrant for the payment to the university of all interest from the investment remaining in his hands up to ths amount of the appropriated each year respectively: if the amount be not agreed upon, the order to be settled on notice. The case has been on the calendars of the court since 1883. The appeal was from orders of the old third department, awarding to the relator a peremptory man- damus. The facts in the case are undisputed, tbe case having been submitted in the form of an agreed case under the statutes. By chapter ISO of the laws of the United States. the government granted to tbe several states, on certain conditions, public land and land scrip equal to acres for senator and representative in congress from the respective states. By chapter 450, laws of New York. 1863, this 'state accepted tbe grant and received its share of tbe land and scrip. One of tbe conditions being that tbe income from this grant should en- dow at least one college by chapter laws of York, 1865, Cornell university be- came tbe sole beneficiary of tbe trust, and as such, claims the derived therefrom. In 18S1 the principal of this land wrip and from tbe land sales fixed at and is known ac the land scrip fund. In 1SS1 and apain in 1882 ttw ap- propriated from this fund for tbe un- iversity. Tbe university claimed the entire income from tbe fund, however, which ex- ceeds for the period in question the appropri- ation by Sll.WT. of the council, although the laws of the state to convict the senator from Florida of false- distmctly require that every claim be in- j hood, he said, "there are some aecusa- cluded in the regular claims ordinance.

I have not been in the habit of violating the rules of debate and discussion. But if the senator thinks by his idle bravado, by his defense of this vast spoliation of the public domain in the interest of those who have profited by it, that he can intimidate me from defending the rights of the people of my State, I treat him with the scorn and the contempt that he de eerves. The senator from Kansas has spoken without the truth. My recordin the state of Florida is down. There is no boodler there he defends who does not attack me in similar language and denunciation such as he has used to-day. Further, Mr. Call said, Senator Plumb was shamefully ignorant of the subject and that it was disreputable to the senate that it should have as chairman of the committee on pr.blic lands, "a senator who not only de- fends the interests of the boodlers, but shows his ignorance of the subject specially com- mitted to him.

Slowly the train proceeded and everything looked dark and dismal from the fury of the storm there was a smashing of glass that rose above the din, j anil planks came shooting into the coach win- dows one side and went out at the other as if they had been fired from a carmen. The passengers in the coaches crouched down close to the and the lumber went flying over their heads. The storm of pUnfcs and wood was so heavy it crashed every pane of glass in the rear coach and the wind jammed it in piles on the track between the trucks, stopping the train. There the cars stood until the storm had somewhat abated, hen tie tram crew got out and cleared the roadway, after an hour's work in the drenc i- ing rain. The Hamilton Divorce Caw. ELJ5IR.A, N. Y..
